  6. Introduction to Christian Theology - Saint Paul School of Theology

    Theology is “talk about God” and critical reflection about the Christian faith and what we believe. Even more so, theology is a way of life—what we believe in our heads and hearts should be reflected in the ways we act. Theology involves wonder and wondering about faith-full questions, so the course will engage questions that deepen our understanding of and relationship to God.

    Suggested Reading:  Exploring Theology by Elaine A. Robinson (Fortress Press, 2014)
